As a marketing communications consultant, I specialize in projects involving the written word, website design and construction, and marketing administration. I have developed diverse technical and creative skills, an advanced educational background (including an MBA), first-hand exposure to many industries and organizations, and a high-energy, entrepreneurial business approach.

In addition to my professional copywriting experience, I offer strong editorial skills.

Not long ago, website maintenance became a fundamental job responsibility of marketing and PR specialists. So I added basic website design and construction to the marketing communications services I offer. Since public relations and customer information is the primary objective of many websites, I specialize in developing targeted, attractive websites for small businesses and organizations that need a “brochure on the web.”
The web-related services I provide include: writing and editing the copy on your site, designing the graphics and page layouts, and composing advanced HTML code. I will also perform many webmaster duties, such as:
- helping you select an internet service provider,
- uploading files to the web server,
- configuring POP email accounts,
- creating automatic response messages,
- registering your site with leading search engines.
I can help you publicize your organization on the web for the entire world to see!

This site was awarded a top ten ranking from PoliticsPA as one of the best campaign websites in Pennsylvania during 2002. PoliticsPA asked a veteran website developer (who has designed a number of political websites for federal, state, and local races) to contribute to this feature.

Always eager to take on a new challenge, I began my marketing communications consulting career in 1995 with a special project.
I supervised the design and production of a transportable exhibition display for an international sales representative of a digital wireless telecommunications company. To showcase the product to best advantage, I organized and supervised a photography shoot in rugged and remote Montana.
My telecom client also wanted me to establish a marketing information resource center to monitor the competitive environment and industry trends. Working quickly, I created the resource center and completed the tradeshow booth in under three months—with no overtime.
More recently, a financial advisory firm asked me to interpret and recast, in plain English, complicated relocation guidelines for its clients in a Fortune 50 company. Although this assignment was unrelated to advertising and promotion, I was glad to tackle it.
In addition to communications-related projects, I have also completed large technical editing, job profile creation, and skill mapping assignments for the corporate training division of a major computer hardware manufacturer (working as a subcontractor). I was required to accomplish these tasks transparently while filling in for a human resources professional during her extended maternity leave.
As you can see, I’m highly versatile...so, if you have a special project that you are reluctant to handle, just ask me!
